Saturday Swim Session: 8 Week Fitness Swim Training Plan Week 1

I’ve been working on a new Fitness Swim Training Plan to improve your swimming over 8 weeks. The sessions for this programme between 1,500m and 2,100m long and there are three sessions each week. I’ve got variations of the training plan for people who can complete four or five swims each week, as well as for people who can only fit two swims per week. As well as a 12, 16 and 20 week variation of the programme. These are the sessions for the first week.

Saturday Swim Session: Margaret Cyphers’ Tapa Workout

Including a mix of drills and a range of swimming strokes will help you develop your technique and feel for the water. This session is great for swimmers and triathletes preparing for longer, open water swims.

Thursday Training Plan – 16 week Mount Ocean Swim Training Plan

The New Zealand Ocean Swim Series is a great event series, with events all over the country. When you cross the finish line at the Mount you will have achieved something special at this fun series.

Tuesday Training Plan: 4 weeks to a Faster 1500m with only two 2km Swims per week (25m/50m Pool)

As you follow the programme you will find yourself swimming your 1,500m faster. Now whether that is a PB or not will depend on how fast you have swum in the past, but it will definitely be faster at the end of the 4 weeks than it is now. With this programme people improve on average nearly 2 minutes, with some people improving by over 10%.

Saturday Swim Session: Margaret Cyphers’ Pace Setter

Conducting reps with changes of pace and minimal rest between reps will help build your stamina. This session is great for swimmers and triathletes preparing for longer, open water swims.

Saturday Swim Session: Margaret Cyphers’ Need For Speed

Saturday Swim Session: Hackett & Phelps Go Head To Head

In 2003 Grant Hackett and Michael Phelps spent a week training together when both were at the height of their international stardom. They pushed each other and challenged their swimming. This session is great for swimmers and triathletes preparing for longer, open water swims.
